The water main break has caused Kaufman ISD's campuses to be without water, officials said, which is why they decided to cancel classes.  

Officials with the city said crews were working on repairs around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday and expected the break to be fixed within 'a few hours.' 

Kaufman ISD officials had originally said around 6 a.m. that schools would be on a two-hour delay. 

This is a developing story. WFAA will update it as more information becomes available.
